This made a great potato side to serve with recipe #61659. The recipe was reduced to 3 servings with leftovers being used in eggs the following morning for breakfast. The carrots were baby cut carrots that were cut into thin strips and the smallest potatoes I could find needed cutting in quarters. The recipe goes together quickly and looks very colorful.
Enjoyed these potatoes a lot! I thought I had more than a pound of new potatoes peeled so I doubled the butter, tomato paste, and dill mixture. Used fresh dill, 2 teaspoons of minced garlic, and baby carrots that I sliced. Next time I would add a little more dill and not cook my potatoes until the broke when I inserted a fork. The carrots were tender crisp and the potatoes browned a bit, the butter mixture is definitely a winner. I did add a sprinkle of fresh ground pepper and kosher salt, cooked in my electric skillet, and served with Lainey6605's Recipe #192725. Thank you so much MarraMamba for posting this great potato recipe.
Very nice concoction! Served with a grilled chicken, and a great meal was had by all! Didn't have baby potatoes, used Yukon Gold and diced as suggested. Lovely color combination, and that sauce is quite the tasty little thing! I would NEVER have thought to put dill and tomato paste together, but wow--it was really good! Nice surprise!!
